Consultation on the new plan, what a strategic housing investment plan is, how to give your feedback, what happens next, previous plans.

Consultation on the new draft Strategic Housing Investment Plan 2022 to 2027

We are now consulting Consultation on the new draft Strategic Housing Investment Plan (SHIP), which covers the period 2022 to 2027, has now started with comments and feedback invited from all interested parties until 28 September 2021.

See the proposed draft of the strategic housing investment plan [1MB] .


What the strategic housing investment plan is

The Scottish Government allocates grant funding to local authority areas through the Affordable Housing Supply Programme.

As part of the Affordable Housing Supply Programme process, local authorities are required to prepare and update a Strategic Housing Investment Plan each year which sets out key investment priorities for affordable housing which will help to achieve the outcomes set out in the current Renfrewshire Local Housing Strategy which covers the period 2016 to 2021.

Affordable Housing can include a range of tenures and includes homes for social rent, low cost home ownership/shared equity, shared ownership, intermediate/Mid-Market Rent and private sector delivered below market cost housing.

Following the consultation period, any representations will be taken into account before finalising the Strategic Housing Investment Plan which will be submitted for approval to the Council's Communities, Housing and Planning Policy Board in October 2021. The final Strategic Housing Investment Plan will also be submitted to the Scottish Government.


How to give feedback

Due to restrictions currently in place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic we would ask that any comments are provided by email wherever possible. Comments can be sent to: strategyandplace@renfrewshire.gov.uk.
